Automechanika Participation for Vipal

The event was marked by the scale that is typical of the region: 2,017 exhibitors from 58 countries in 14 pavilions. Vipal’s participation was thanks to the company’s partnership with Sindipeças (the National Association of Brazilian Auto Parts Manufacturers). Vipal’s experience in the expo has not only strengthened the brand in the Middle East, Africa and Asia, which are important markets where the company sees good possibilities for growth, but also allowed the company to make contact with more than 50 companies from eleven countries.

“We had the opportunity to establish invaluable contact with companies from Malaysia, the United Arab Emirates, Lebanon, India, Turkey, Kenya, Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Madagascar,” commented Vipal’s overseas business coordinator, Dijan Rigo.
